Default Glue Guns with Interchangeable Nozzles or Fine Tip Glue Gun?

Has anyone found a high-temp glue gun with interchangeable nozzles, or a full-size fine-tip glue gun?

I have a nice high-temp glue gun that adheres really well, but it doesn't have a fine tip, and I really need a smaller tip for detail work to better control the amount of glue that comes out of the nozzle. I've searched and searched, but the only glue guns I can find with a fine tip are the "mini" models, and I've been told that those don't heat up as much and therefore adhere as well.

If someone has had a different experience than that, I'd love to hear it! Would also love to know of any high temp guns that have both a regular and fine tip you can swap out, or a high temp fine tip gun that isn't a "mini" model.

Thanks for the help!

I use (and love) Aleen's Ultimate glue gun. It has different nozzles, is a high temp gun and is cordless if you want. I only use the skinny nozzle on mine. It is around $25 at Michaels, but with the coupon you can get it for half price.

I don't bother with the cordless part...I just love that it has that super skinny needle nose nozzle! That part alone is worth the price.

For the ladies whoe have the Aleene's Ultimate glue gun, do you find switching nozzles to be a pain? I'd like to get one but heard that you need a wrench to switch between nozzles.

Also does it leak much? I currently have a cheapie mini that doesn't leak at all.
